I have been all about the Netflix, lately. Maybe it’s because the weather is finally cooling off and I just want to hang out on my couch with a throw and encased by a fortress of pillows. I’m also sick with a cold, so there’s nothing better than a pillow fortress.
It’s a season for movie watching, and there are a few that remind me for one reason or another of fall.
1. Sleepy Hollow (1999)
This is kind of a quirky horror movie. It’s more spooky than horrific, and it is perfect for cuddling up to watch around Halloween. It’s visually wonderful, and I like seeing a classic story told in movie form.
2. Horns (2013)
This one is hard to describe without sounding like I’m in the middle of a drug-induced dream. Daniel Radcliffe’s character, Ig, one day awakens to find horns growing out of his head. The horns have a weird effect on people around him, and he uses his powers to try to find out who killed his girlfriend.
I recommend it if you’re into indie flicks with a supernatural edge. The movie is based on a book by Joe Hill, which is also very good.
3. Tucker & Dale Vs Evil (2010)
If you haven’t seen this, I can’t recommend it enough! Go into it knowing that it is a parody, but seriously the most hilarious parody of horror movies. It tells the story of two hillbilly’s who are minding their own business, when a group of college kids mistake them for backwoods killers.
4. Jumanji (1995)
Jumanji excited me so much as a kid, and it still does. I wanted a real life Jumanji board game, even though I saw the epic disaster that happened if you played it. I always felt like the guy with the bazooka made things even worse than the man-eating vines.
5. The Others (2001)
I like scary movies that aren’t that gory and disturbing. Creepy, yes, but I don’t want to have nightmares for a week. Don’t get me wrong, there are some scary parts in this movie, but it’s also a mystery. In it, Nicole Kidman’s character lives in a huge, old house with her two photosensitive children, and she believes that her house is haunted. Creepiness ensues.
What are your favorite movies to watch in fall?

I saw the Others in theaters with my mom! Lord I'm old haha. LOVE Tucker and Dale!
I LOVE The Others. I remember seeing it in the theater & being so shocked … in the season of Sixth Sense, I don't know how it got pulled over again.
I loved that Tucker & Dale movie – not even sure how we fell into it but it was hilarious.
I love Hocus Pocus this time of year 🙂
ooooh I want to watch the others!! I also can't wait to start watching Halloween movies!
Sleepy Hollow is my favorite Johnny Depp movie. I haven't seen the Horns movie yet but I read the book earlier this year and enjoyed it. I could see it being a decent movie.
I have never seen The Others, but I do love Sleepy Hollow and Jumanji 🙂
What a scary list! I'm too much of a chicken for your fall movie list lol!

no to scary movies!! the other day i was looking at my feed and saw “best scary movies for halloween” and it had an image of the Grudge girl. i threw the phone down and cowered under the blankets! (not joking about that either).
I'm a big Hocus Pocus fan, but we are also watching all the Batman movies this fall because they seem Halloweeny. Scary movies aren't my thing. We always watch Nightmare before Christmas and Corpse Bride on Halloween too.
How did I not realize horns starred Daniel Radcliffe!? Def need to watch that one 🙂
